Owned and operated by the Kruger family, Wild Goose Vineyard (WGV) consistently remains one of Canada’s most awarded wineries (including 8-time recipient of the coveted Lieutenant Governor General’s award).
Construction of a larger wine shop facility was completed in 2012, with fans appreciating the spacious new tasting room. None however, have had the opportunity to enjoy the Kruger’s ultimate vision…until now.
GM Roland Kruger is pleased to announce the opening of their new bistro May 3.
“I’ve never been so busy in January before,” laughs Kruger. He describes their menu-style as “comfort food,” pairing perfectly with both the WGV and other local wines, craft beers and mixed bevvies that will be available.
Kruger says that the “2013’s are amazing wines” and that he’s “very excited by the aromatics and flavours.” Be sure to visit Okanagan Falls, and prepare to be wowed!
2013 Autumn Gold $19.00
A perennial sell-out at the winery, WGV’s popular fruit-driven white blend of Gewürztraminer, Riesling, and Pinot Blanc is available again! Enjoy the jump-out-of-the-glass aromatics and flavours of orange zest, nectarine and spice, with a crisp finish and hint of sweetness. 2012’s vintage was awarded “Best Blend” at 2013’s Okanagan Wine Festival’s Best of Varietal Awards, and this one’s just as good, if not better.
2013 Morio & Friends $23.00
Kruger describes this “amazing summer wine” with having “intense Muscat characteristics, including ripe mandarin orange, floral and spice, finishing with a hint of residual sweetness”. At a limited 120 case production, it is a luxury only available at the winery. Yet another reason to visit!
2011 Horizon $22.00
A rich blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Verdot – Horizon offers aromas of red and black berries, with hints of anise, clove and a smoky finish. A heavier-style red made for meats, pastas, and more.
